Ghostwire: Tokyo Spider's Thread soundtrack debuts on Steam

Ghostwire: Tokyo's free Spider’s Thread update launched back in April. The new game mode challenges players to navigate a 30-stage gauntlet, in addition to introducing new enemies, enhanced combat abilities, Photo Mode enhancements, and two new side missions to uncover.

The Spider's Thread soundtrack by Masatoshi Yanagi, sound designer at developer Tango Gameworks, is now available through Steam, along with streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Describing his approach to the score, Yanagi states on the vinyl soundtrack announcement post:
[We] actively used traditional Japanese instruments and musical scales, but also mixed in digital sounds and noise created with synthesizers and used it as like a collage of sound modified from waveforms of sampling. I think it ended up with a distinctive unique soundtrack fitting a title set in modern Tokyo.
Pre-mastered by Joe Caithness Mastering, the Ghostwire: Tokyo vinyl soundtrack ships from publisher Laced Records in London, along with distributor Light in the Attic in Seattle. The digital soundtrack is streaming on YouTube Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Bethesda Softworks has uploaded the 160-minute score to YouTube, set to a sprite art screensaver by Ultimate Pixel Crew. Ghostwire: Tokyo is available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows through Steam and the Epic Games Store.
